Apple-Focused Conferences in 2023

In-person conferences are starting to return as pandemic precautions ease. In previous years, we continually updated a TidBITS article listing all the Apple-focused (or at least Apple-adjacent) conferences we could find, but I was never happy with the approach because TidBITS isn’t designed for living documents that change and evolve over time. So, after a suggestion that we bring back the conference list, I’m trying a new approach: Discourse’s wiki pages, which let anyone add and change information. (I can lock down permissions, but I hope that doesn’t become necessary.)
